The universe is mainly composed of unknown "dark matter" and "dark energy". Their nature have not been understood. Investigating the nature is important to understand the universe and test the Einstein's theory of general relativity. We will investigate the nature by carrying out gravitational lensing analysis of simulations and multi-wavelength data.
